    TR55ix if your stock.

    TR6ix are one step colder if you are blown or spraying nitrous.

    I just bought new TR6ix off a dealer on ebay. Cheapest I could find them online...

    I went with E3 plugs and the thundervolt wires that are half inch thick! I am running a Maggie but I have nothing but good things to say about the plugs and wires....

    I ran NGK Iridium and was perpetually chasing missing problem. Got a set of AC Delco iridium and that was the end of the problem.

    Whatever plug you will choose, get them from Advance Auto Parts and use ES123 coupon code.

    www.sparkplugs.com shows

    NGK IX iridium 7397 TR5IX .040" $7.83

    but, I bet Advance Auto is priced lower.

    I got mine from O'Reilly's Auto Parts, they were $6.99/plug for TR55IX. Summit Racing, Jegs, Advance Auto all want $7.99/plug, that's an $8.00 savings for plugs!

    Re: where to get spark plugs

    Stock AC Delco iridium plugs. Got them from Rockauto.com. Why do people run aftermarket plugs on cars without a blower? Is it leftover from the days where slapping an MSD coil on a car was "way better than that stock junk" and it just stuck?

    Re: where to get spark plugs

    It seems like lately many GM plugs are Denso iridiums. You can either get from GM/AC, or from Denso if you want something colder/hotter/etc. I believe Denso still has the smallest electrode in the industry, when you see it, it's pretty surprising how narrow the electrode is.
